Russian scientists are exploring the possibility of using the vaccine in the form of a nasal spray "Sputnik Light". This was announced by Moscow Deputy Mayor for Social Development Anastasia Rakova.
According to her, the nasal form of the vaccine against coronavirus will also be two-component, but in the form of a spray with a special nozzle. However, it will not be administered on its own.
"Despite the apparent simplicity of administration, in any case it must be administered by a medical worker, and also twice," Anastasia Rakova explained in a comment to Channel One. She added that the drug will help to form local immunity, it is less effective but safer.
The nasal form of the vaccine is planned for those citizens for whom injections are not recommended, as well as for revaccinations. If antibodies have not developed enough or have started to decline in patients who have already been vaccinated or who have had an illness, they will be offered Sputnik Light.
